I Know What You Did Last Supper

Irish bookmaker/poker site Paddy Power answers the age old bumper sticker query "What Would Jesus Do?" with the below billboard:

While we certainly think that poker with good friends and the lovely Mary Magdalene would be a wonderful last evening, it's no suprise people across predominantly Roman Catholic Ireland took offense to the use of da Vinci's Last Supper in Paddy Power's latest markeing campaign. In case you can't tell, it shows Jesus (the real One, not Ferguson) with a stack of poker chips and his apostles playing poker and roulette, along with the slogan "There's a place for fun and games."

Irish ad watchdog, the Orwellian sounding Advertising Standards Authority, claimed the ad breached guidelines referring to taste, decency and religion.

Word has it that Paddy Power defiantly took down the "Last Supper" ads and replaced them with billboards that say: "There's a place for fun and games. Apparently this isn't it."

Apparently.

In other Irish poker-playing, supper-eating, bookmaking, piousness news, odds that Dublin-based poker pro and 2005 WSOP main event final tablist Andrew "The Monk" Black (seen here during a break at the 2005 WSOP main event) had fish and chips for dinner last night: 2/1.
